Series of shots. Starts with overview of two cars facing each other—one is trying to pass the other on a thin road. We pass a small town (looks like historic Brookville, Maryland). Cut to a man walking down the sidewalk of a neighborhood street toward an intersection. Cut to a close-up of a nice, old stop sign. We hear the screeching of brakes.

Nice images of a small town—little boy safety guards direct other children at an intersection. We see the middle-class neighborhood streets around them.
